Madelyn Alt's bewitching series is great fun! Characters you care about, well-developed plot lines, and a healthy dollop of accurate information about Wiccan practices and beliefs make these books well worth reading. Each book builds on the others, so be sure to read them in order. I can't wait for the next installment!

I have been a fan of the Maggie O'Neil series since the first book. I was anxiously waiting for No Rest for the Wiccan since I have thought very highly of the others in the series. After reading, I feel that this book was lacking something. Don't get me wrong, the writing was very well done and what I've come to expect as a fan of Madelyn Alt, however, it just seemed that the plot was hurried and ending was full of holes. Overall, the book just felt flat. I was a little let down. I hope that this book is the foundation for something bigger and better.

I really enjoyed this book. She gets a little dramatic with her characters, but she stays on track with the plot of the story. I like the way her characters come to life and sometimes you have a movie playing in your head. I liked this author so much, I bought her latest book which has just come out in hardback.

Poor Maggie! Before she met Felicity Dow, her life was pretty boring. All she thought was that she had social anxiety and a dead end job. Now she's an empath/psychic working for a Wiccan boss at the posh boutique Enchantments. Her little town of Stony Mill has been over run lately with weird happenings and lots of murder. The latest installment of life in Stony Mill, Indiana is another winner, and Madelyn Alt has definitely found a rabid fan in me! I love the relationship Felicity and Maggie have, and the realistic "on again/off again/not again" relationship she has with Tom is as frustrating as they are in real life. I also love that she explores the "will they or won't they" feelings between Mags and Marcus(I say go for it, Mags! He's smart, sexy and a witch!), and the introduction of Minnie the Minx, Mags' orphaned kitten companion. Having visited the area of Indiana that Stony Mill is supposed to be set is wonderful, as the Amish and Plain are residents, and how interesting(and cool) it is to see buggies parked in the Wal-Mart, Target, and Meijer's parking lots. It's frankly driving me nuts to have to wait until July for the next installment, but wait I will!

Maggie is back. Her sister, Mel, is pregnant and on bed rest and her mother guilt trips her into helping out. Then the local owner of the feed plant ends up dead, supposedly from falling off one of the silos. But things don't add up, like why would he be up there if he has a fear of heights?? At the same time, there is a spirit in Mel's house that Maggie is asked to take care of. So, Lis and Marcus come in and do a cleaning. The problem with this is Mel is a horrible gossip. Now the little town knows that Lis and Marcus are witches and they have a narrow point of view on this behavior. The good thing is the widow calls Maggie into do a cleansing of the property so she is not haunted by the ghost of her husband. But Maggie gets the feeling that this is more than just a simple cleansing. Another great book for this series. I love how we learn that Lis and Marcus are NOT a couple and that he is really interested in Maggie. Too bad she keeps going after Tom, ARGH!! Anyway, great story, wonderful who did it and why. I cannot wait until July to get the fifth book.

It's so hard waiting for a new book by Madelyn Alt. I was hooked from the first couple of pages with her first book. Although I loved this book like I do all her books, I missed the antique shop and the rest of the crew. It didnt feel as 'cozy' to me as the last books, BUT I am not knocking this book at all. It just had a little bit of a different feel to it. But one thing I have to say is...... yay Marcus!!!!

Madelyn Alt's witchy mystery series is well worth the read. Her latest "No Rest for the Wiccan" catches readers up on the heroine Maggie's life and loves. Between being 'outed' by her sister after taking care of a slight 'entity' problem for her, being lambasted by both her mother and the local fire-and-brimstone preacher, getting tangled up in the latest murder in her small town, adopting a new kitten, and juggling the two men in her life...well Maggie's really hoping that surely things will have to slow down some.

I like Maggie and I'm personally rooting for luscious Marcus (big, bold, long-haired biker wiccan) to win the competition for Maggie's attention. So far there's no sex, but really well plotted mysteries are why I read Alt's books!!

Okay, I've been a fan of Alt since she wrote the first one. This is the 4th and she is still getting better.
I was at the bookstore in Ft Wayne (near Alt's hometown) and showed the book to the manager. Next thing I know is that it has been moved from the regular mystery shelf to up front as a New Release/MUST Read.
yes, this is a must read. It is easily re-readable and will have a place in my car for all the stops and waiting. I read it the first day I got it. I'm still enjoying it on the 3rd read thru. It will be my dinner companion for the foreseeable future.
This is a great book. The characters are becoming more real, the plots are better. I would like to see her write a longer book. Some of the plot needs a bit more drawn out, but she is getting her stride and the stories are stronger.
You feel like strangling her sister and mother. Maggie is getting a lot more confident. She has two potential boyfriends. One is everything her mother wants, the other may just be everything that Maggie needs. I am looking forward to the next book just to find out what happens.
This is not only a book for an adult to enjoy. But, it is a book that you can share with your kids.

This book was awesome. I’m giving it four butterflies because it was one that I really really liked and I was caught up in the story after the first chapter. Granted it took me a little bit longer to finish this book then I wanted, but that’s okay I guess. Even though I am reading these books after my mom, aunt, and sister I am enjoying reading them. I felt so sorry for Maggie throughout the whole book because of her having to deal with her younger drama queen of a pregnant sister, Tom’s jealousy toward Marcus, trying not to run into Marcus, and a bunch of other things. I am quite pleased to say that Maggie caught a pretty friendly kitten. I hope that Maggie figures out her feelings for both Marcus and Tom since a love triangle is pretty exciting for a little bit but it does faze out as well. I still stand by my early comment before that Maggie would be better off with Marcus than with Tom in the long run. Then again that is just my thinking and I wonder if we ever actually do find out. Overall this book is really exciting and pretty entertaining. I actually never thought of the murderer being two people and let alone the two people that it was. But then again that is usually how it always is for me with these mystery books. I always think of one person and having it completely turned around and the actual killer surprising me. But then again I can’t believe what Melanie and Margo did to Maggie, Marcus, and Liss about their witch ways. Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by Baroness’ Book Trove.

Definitely not Nobel prize literature, but a fun read all the same. It's nice to relax and enjoy a book without having to think about the reasons behind it. This book is great entertainment.
